The October half term is often a welcome break between the summer and Christmas holidays. Kids being off school gives a rare opportunity to get away and spend some quality time together as a family.
Being a parent myself I often think it’s much easier to entertain the little ones on holiday and the school holidays are an altogether more enjoyable time if you can sneak in a mini break.
Travelling in the UK is not only much more convenient than going abroad but often much cheaper as the prices are per lodge and not per person. This can add up when budgeting for flights and hotels but with lodge holidays it’s just one price and you can easily travel there by car.
So once you’ve decided on an October half term holiday with the family – where to go? Luckily there is so much choice, with lodges with hot tubs dotted all over England, Wales, Scotland and beyond. You might even consider the Isle of Wight. Some really popular locations are those close to beaches such as Cornwall and Devon as well as inland locations with woodland settings such as lodges with hot tubs in York.
When going on holiday with family you might be looking for something different to the average lodge holiday. Romance and seclusion might not be high on your agenda whereas an indoor pool and family friendly entertainment might be very important. Equally you may prefer the relaxation of a quiet setting with nature walks and local villages to explore on the doorstep.
